Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

A brief look at the year 2000.
Apple stock opening price was
$61.31 per share.

That alone was probable cause
For that fad of such crunchy hair.

It sure doesn't really matter
That Nokia 3310
Had a screen that wouldn't shatter
Only every now and then.

A business man with a red case,
Listening to “Breathe” by Faith Hill,
Held inventions for cyberspace.
He carried many daffodil.

Bring it on,” said his girlfriend, Blue.
The businessman opened his case,
“K. Let's see what I have for you:
Camera phone, flash drive, bluetooth, lace.”

Blue, with heavy eyeliner, was
Pleased as pleased could be. Eminem
Was her favourite, just because
He sure wasn't from Bethlehem.

But who could mention 2000
Without recall, G.W. Bush won,
No recount in Florida, and
He wished he had an electron gun.
